This year was an unprecedented year for the yearbook. j3y imple-
menting a new style, changing the layout and bringing in a new
staff, the yearbook process was the best it has ever been. Not only
were there new executives, but also a fresher view and outlook that
produced an incredible compilation of the year's events. Thank you
to Vinnie Vrotny, Tim Curren, Emily Smith '00 Lynsey Wollin-Casey,
Drea Gallaga, and all the students who contributed to the yearbook.
Everyone's work and participation made a huge difference.

Every year, each of the Middle School
and Upper School classes begins the year
by participating in an outdoor educational
experience. The purpose of these trips is
to allow new students to meet the other
members of the class and to teach stu-
dents how to work in cooperative teams.
Everyone enjoys these trips, and it is a
great way to start the year. The bonding
that occurs in these few days sets the tone
for the rest of the year.

Get to know Christoph:
Every year we look forward to meeting our
exchange student. This year, we welcomed
Christoph to his new community where he
showed us his talents and abilities. He is a
warm, friendly, intelligent addition to our
classes, sports teams, and clubs, and is a great
friend to all. We are fortunate to have had
the opportunity to get to know him. As the
year comes to an end, we will be sad to say
goodbye. We wish him the best of luck in all
his future adventures.

Homecoming was a soaring success this
year! Spirit week included pajama day,
dino day, crazy hat day, super fan day, and
of course, RAIDER PRIDE day.
Several Alumni returned to campus for
the weekend, including singer and
songwriter, Richard Marx '81. The Pep
Rally was a great start to Homecoming
weekend. Purple power fdled the stands
at all of the sporting events.

Halloween was a huge success at North
Shore this year. Everyone was excited
for the parade and eager to show off their
creative costumes, especially the seniors
and their buddies. Pigs, 1950s basketball
players, the characters from Clue, and
even Van Gogh made an appearance.
Many faculty came in costume this year,
which added to the experience. Nothing
could match the excitment of walking

volunteering for the Parents' Association

By Aracely Vasquez *OC
Every year, all members of the School
including students, faculty, parents, and
alumni gather in the Mac Gym to
celebrate traditions from around the
world during the Holiday Celebration.
Each buddy group performs a dance, the
faculty and alumni sing and dance, and
then the kindergartners and seniors do
the Hokey Pokey. Even Santa takes time
out from his busy schedule to drop in for
a visit. This year there were a lot of laughs
and great all-school interactions.

Several times throughout the year, Morning Ex
becomes Buddy Day. Students engage in various
activities and projects with their buddies. Prior to
Homecoming, buddy pairs are responsible for
making the signs that propel North Shore sports tean
to victory. We also make holiday cards for those who
need cheering up, help clean up the North Shore
campus when it gets really dirty, and play some
incredibly fun games. And most importantly, Buddy
Days allow us to create valuable relationships with
students in different grades.

Shooting Some Hoops at the
By Madelaine Kukanza '08
Basketball Bash was extremely successful
this year. The Upper School Girls' team
lost by one point and played an amazing
game, and the Seventh Grade Boys domi-
nated their game. Once again, the juniors
held a fundraiser that included a raffle
and shooting hoops at halftime, which
was very successful. The turnout this year
was fantastic. All Raiders fans came and
cheered on all of the different age groups
playing basketball. It was a great day.

This year provided lots of unique and fun ways to live
up to our motto Live and Serve! The juniors chose Pen-
nies for Peace for their service project. From January 8th
to the 25th, each advisory in the Upper School had ajar
in which they tried to get as many coins a possible. In
conjunction with the juniors, the Fourth and Fifth Grade
musical, Seussical, The Musical Jr. helped raise proceeds
to benefit Pennies for Peace. The Upper School also
organized a Knit-a-thon which was held on March 9th
to benefit a non-profit organization called Afghans for
Afghans. They enjoyed a great turnout! On May 12-16,
students in the Middle School had a week-long bike drive
with all the benefits going to a non-profit group called the
Working Bikes Co-op. The Art Department introduced
The CLOCKenspiel project where students, teachers, and
parents were given the opportunity to design and build
their own clock. Once they were completed, buyers were
urged to bid for them, raising money for our sister school
in Oaxaca, Mexico and Moshi, Tanzania.

The Homecoming Dance, hosted by the
seniors, took an interesting approach this
year. The theme was "Neon," and every-
one got into the theme, especially the se-
niors. The dance was a really good way to
end a great weekend. This was one of the
best themes and Homecoming Dance.
The black lights, glow sticks and neon
clothing really added to the affair.

were sad to see the trip come to an end. The highlight
of the trip was when Erruiia Colman, Youssef Ibrahim,
Aleda Deuble, and Jake|Kann laid the wreath at the
Tomb of the UnknownfSolider. Another thing every-
one loved was the play Shear Madness. It is a play
about a barbershop, with a scandalous ending. The

loved the trip.

Each year, the new Fifth Grade class takes on a role of
responsibility like no class in the Lower School. Being
the oldest in the Lower School division, members of
the Fifth Grade class learn to adapt to new priorities,
assume different roles, and prepare themselves for the
new world of Middle School. One of the first things
the Fifth Grade takes charge of in the year is the lead-
ership of the annual Halloween parade. Leading Lower-
Schoolers with their spirited costumes and positive
attitudes, Fifth-Graders announce and organize the
parade, showing the rest of the school what it means
to take charge. With experience under their belts, the
Fifth Grade has no trouble preparing and executing a
flawless and inspired Holiday Program. Further into
their special year, they settled comfortably into their
part as role models to the Lower School. In June, the
Lower School's leaders are honored with a special grad-
uation ceremony at Lower School Closing. The Lower-
Schoolers will miss them, but we look forward to their
success and achievements as Middle-Schooolers.

Super-charged with spirit, excitement, and high expectations, the
atmosphere of this year's Interim Week was something special here
at North Shore. With a week off from normal classes and home-
work, Upper School students signed up to participate in teacher-led
trips, projects, or daily excursions. Each Interim program is de-
signed to enrich teachers' and students' education in areas outside
the classroom and, frequently, outside their comfort zones. While
all of the Interims are great fun, each student is required to partici-
pate in a community-service-based Interim project once during
their four years in high school. This year, one of the new commu-
nity service projects was creating art with elderly Alzheimers and
Dementia patients; the experience was powerful and rewarding.
Other old favorites included working at Molloy Education center,
a facility for children with developmental disabilities, and helping
to beautify our state's outdoors at the Paver Trail Nature Center.
Other local Interims included Second City and cake decorating.
One major part of Interim every year is the trips offered. This year,
groups traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico and Wycliffe College in Stone-

For the fall play this year, the Upper
School put on A Few Good Men, by
Aaron Sorkin. The play is about two
marines who are arrested for murder,
and how their lawyers fight for their
freedom. One of the biggest chal-
lenges that the cast had to overcome
was learning how to act like Marines.
The cast received a lot of help from
Mr. Block and Mr. Dachille. Lighting
changes were used to illustrate the oc-
curring time changes in the plot, and
this technique ended up working very
well. The play got off the ground with
help from Ms. Kelso, the director, and
Ms. Flory, who designed the set. It was
a huge success, and everyone who at-
tended enjoyed themselves.

performed three short plays. Some

could relate to. Ms. Flory enlarged

The Madrigal Feaste this year was a
huge hit. Everyone wished we had
it every year. The chorus sang beau-
tifully and the food was delicious.
The setting definitely added to the
medieval feel. Peter Callahan shined
as the jester and everyone was laugh-
ing when he acted out the 12 Days
of Christmas. The Madrigal Feaste
would not have taken place without
Mr. Querio's hard work. We all can't

Each year, we are treated to two con-

This year, on December 13, 2007,
these groups performed their annual
Winter Concert. Each of the groups
sounded wonderful as they sang
their collection of songs. We were
treated to returning alumnus, Chris-
tine Perkins '06 who sang a song
in Swahili with the Lower School
Chorus. The year also marked the
debut of the Lower School Girls'
and Boys' A Cappella groups. The
Lower School boys joined the Up-
per School A Cappella Club, which
turned out to be fun. At the end of
each concert, the choirs combine to
share one song to cap the evening.
This year, they sang a song written
by alumnus, Richard Marx '83, who
was honored in the fall.

Each of the grades shares a dance, song,

celebrations that we observe. This
year's theme was Winter Wonderland
and we were treated to a wonderful set
created by Mrs. Wagner and the Fifth

anticipation for the Junior and Senior

lowed by all Lower School students

The band concert was held on
January 31st and brought amazing
sounds to the North Shore commu-
nity. Those who came to the concert
had to brave the snow, which lead to
a snow day the next day. Two Lower
School bands, the Middle School
band, and the Upper School ensem-
ble helped to brighten students' and
teachers' evenings with their upbeat
music. There were also several so-
loists during the evening, including
Tommy McHugh '17 on trumpet,
and Kate Lee '12 on flute. The mu-
sicians showed off their talents on
instruments like the trumpet, clari-
net, piano, electric guitar, trombone,
flute and drums. The combination
of these various instruments created
quite an amazing performance.

a huge success. They performed The
Three Little Pigs for an audience that
not only included the whole school,
but their parents as well. The show
had two very scary wolves along with
three adorable pigs. Along with the
pigs and wolves, there were narrators
and townspeople who sang the songs
wonderfully. Mrs. Kiracibasi led the

This year, the Fourth and Fifth Grade
play took a very interesting approach:
a musical inspired by Dr. Seuss! Mrs.
Hiland read a Dr. Seuss poem, which
was an excellent start to the fun mus-
cial. The musical included many dif-
ferent books including Horton Hears a
Wlio and Gertrude McFuzz. The cos-
tumes were vibrant, and the energy
that the cast gave really encouraged
the audience's involvement as well.

This year the Upper School put on
The Emperor's New Clothes. This play
was especially successful because it not
only appealed to the Lower School
but also was a way to bring seniors and
their kindergarten buddies together.
The Japanese costumes were spec-
tacular along with the beautiful set
that was made up of screens and flow-
ers. The villagers worked to make the
show great with an imitation of Taiko
drumming which really engagedjhe

Every three years, North Shore puts
on a Gilbert and Sullivan musical.
This year, the selection was the Pirates

It was an entertaining musical, with
great singing and action.

The team this year lacked
numbers on the roster but
made up for it with their
spirit. The Raiders went
6-3 in the regular season and
were given the opportunity
to avenge a loss to Alden-
Hebron in the playoffs. Al-
though they lost, the season
remained a tremendous
success. The fairly small
team had 10 seniors who as-
sisted the team in many ways
and will be missed next year.

Knitting Club is a new phenomenon this
year. Started by Mrs. McHugh and a number
of students, its members include both males
and females from a variety of grades. Knit-
ting is on fire this year! It seems like every
day someone new is knitting in the senior
homeroom or in advisory. This club has
shown how fun and relaxing knitting really
can be. It is a service club as well. On March
9th, Knitting Club hosted a knit-a-thon called
"Afghans for Afghans." It was an event to
make scarves, hats and blankets
for people in Afghanistan. This
year, Knitting Club has shown that
knitting is fun and can be put to

Dedicated to those heroes who
help us each and every day
When we think of the heroes in our
lives, we often think of those people who
perform extraordinary tasks, like police-
men and firemen. But heroes can often
be the people in our lives who are around
us all of the time, doing the little things to
make our lives easier. This year, the staff
of the Mirror wants to honor five individ-
uals who make sure that we are ready for
each and every school day.
For 31 years, Sharon Dole has been
the Assistant to the Head of the
School. Her warmth and caring for
all individuals on campus is leg-
endary. Serving under five differ-
ent Heads of School, she has been
a critical part of the leadership at
Both Lorri Braidman, Lower
School Assistant, and Leonie
O'Donohoe, Middle School
Assistant, have returned to
work at North Shore after
leaving for a short period
of time. Previously an As-
sociate in the Admissions
office, Lorri has been help-
ing Lower-Schoolers and
their families for the last four
years make the transition to
school a happy one. Leonie,
previously the Upper School
Assistant, has been helping
Middle-Schoolers deal with
this chaotic time in their lives for the last four years.
For the past five years, Tana Hitch has been helping both Upper School students and faculty keep
their lives in order. Her no-nonsense approach helps those who are trying to assert their indepen-
dence keep on a straight and narrow path.
For the past nine years, Carol Woodhead has been the first voice and person that people experience
on campus. Her willingness to help everyone is appreciated by all.
It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to those whose paths lead them
away from North Shore. For the past nine years, Eric Skalinder has been not
only a teacher of Physics, but has been an advisor, the Junior Homeroom Ad-
visor helping many classes of students plan for prom, has also lead the Upper
School Science Olympiad team, and has helped students build bridges for the
IIT competition. In addition, he is a kind individual who genuinely cares about
each and every student. We will miss the Donald Duck voices, the snaps, and
other quirks that define who Skal is. Thanks Skal, we will miss you.
For the past eight years, Burke Kinnaird has been an integral part of the Middle
School. Burke has been active in all aspects of school life, coaching soccer,
teaching students how to build planes for the Science Olympiad, and in the
classroom teaching students about medieval times, persuading students about
the form of the essay, and unlocking the rules of grammar through countless
MUG paragraphs. Thank you Burke for all that you have done to help students
get ready for the rest of Middle School and Upper School.

The First Milestones
Junior Kindergarten is the first
step towards achiev-
ing many of the mile-
stones at North Shore.
It is a year of excite-
ment and growth. The
friendships formed this
first year help create a
supportive learning en-
vironment. Time spent
with senior buddies is
an exciting opportunity
for JK students to expe-
rience different aspects
of North Shore. They spend
every Morning Ex together as
well as several special "Buddy
Days" throughout the year.
Cinnamon Bear is a tradition
that, through visiting every
child's home, helps to make
the connection between
home and school more mean-
ingful while encouraging literacy and responsibili-
ty. These experiences combined with many others
create a year filled with learning and fun!

The Senior Kinder-
in author studies and
other literacy explorations.
The students create books,
act out stories, and establish
reading skills that will carry
them successfully into first
grade. One of the best mem-
ories for a Senior Kindergart
ner is having a Senior Upper
School buddy. The positive
experiences and strong friendships formed in
Senior Kindergarten will follow these children all
the way through their life at North Shore!

Hot Chocolate House Ti
Third graders snapped their fin-
gers, acted hip,
sipped hot choco-
late, got on stage and
read their original
stories at the an-
nual Hot Chocolate
House. Armed with
digital voice record-
ers, the third graders
fanned out across
the school inter-
ers to adults, asking them
about favorite stuffed animals,
super powers, and other top-
ics. From the collected "tape"
they created audio sound col-
lages. In math, third graders
did "candy box research" for
Mr. J. P Yum Yum, finding
all different boxes one could
design to hold 24 pieces of candy. During activ-
ity time, students played with Noodles the gerbil,
wrote their own comic books, played computer
chess or came up with fun projects of their own.

116 Sixth Grade
Starting a New Era
Sixth Grade is a very important
have to manage the
and their role in the
Middle School. This
year the Sixth Grade
went on Outdoor
Ed to the Glenview
where they learned
how to set up tents,
basic first aid, and
how to identify certain plants
and animals. A big theme of
Sixth Grade curriculum is
the study of Medieval Europe
so they went on a field trip
to Medieval Times where
they rooted for their assigned
knight as that knight rivaled
the other knights. Another
fun field trip the Sixth-Graders went on was an
overnight stay at the Field Museum. The Sixth
Grade also has been very active in service learning
by volunteering at a soup kitchen once a month.

As the school year
began, we quickly
distinguished ourselves as an
outstanding class. We really
enjoyed sharing our talents
with the community. Our
athletic teams enjoyed lots of
success and Seventh Grade
actors definitely stole the
show in the Middle School
play, Testing, Testing. Middle
School dances were fun but nothing compared to
class with Mr. Leesch or Ms. Aldinger. It was a
little rough when Mr. Collins left us for his pater-
nity leave but Ms. Latash did a great job filling in

Middle School Leaders
Eighth Grade year in Middle School
is a very challenging
one. The Eighth-
Graders have to be
the leaders of the
and prepare for the
transition to the
Upper School at
the same time. The
of Eighth Grade is
the Family History
Project. The Eighth-
Graders combine science,
humanities, and art into one
big project that consumes
most of their final Middle
School year. Another high-
light of Eighth Grade is the
annual trip to Washington
D.C. in October. And finally,
Eighth-Graders get to preparel
for their graduation ceremony in June. All in all,
Eighth Grade is one of the most fun, productive,
and memorable Middle School years.

for the freshman
class was that the
Ninth Grade was
the biggest in North
Shore history! Even
so, the class was able
to come together
during Outdoor Ed when the
class camped out at Richard
J. Bong Recreational Facility
and did a multitude of things,
from camping to playing
volleyball. We learned a lot
this year! We could choose
our foreign language, had an
arts rotation to sample the art
choices, and took freshman seminar to learn about
health and diversity. The class has a bright future!

Frontiers. As the
our footprint on
the life of the school became
more pronounced. It's really
exciting to seen lOth-Grad-
ers beginning to take leading
roles on stage, on the athletic
field, and in the classroom.
A definite highlight for the
class was the annual turn-
about dance that we planned
with the freshmen. Many kids said it was the best
dance of year! Now that we have two years under
our belt, watch out for the class of 2010!

XochitL.What to say. You made my last
three years at North Shore great ones. I really
enjoyed my time here, and I'm sure you were
a big part of that. Thanks for always being
there for me. Te Amo.
Shaun, we had some good dances. We made
the school just a little bit cooler. You were
always there for me and we had a lot of great
talks. I love you like a brother.
To my family. Thanks. I know
I've been difficult and I know
maybe I'm a dorky brother, but I
love you guys. Thanks.
It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much
beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like
I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much,
my heart fills up like a balloon that's about
to burst.... And then I remember to relax, and
stop trying to hold onto it, and then it flows
through me like rain and I can't feel anything
but gratitude for every single moment of my
stupid little life.... You have no idea what I'm
talking about, I'm sure. ...But don't worry.
You Will Someday.
Joni & Ivan: I'll never forget our talks at
McDonalds. You guys are the new Shaun and
Jordan. I see you guys as my protegees. I see
greatness. Don't let me down.
This is from the game at the United Center.
Shaun, Caroline, Xochitl and I. You guys all
spice up my life. "Who can say if I've been
changed for the better, but because I knew you
I have been changed for good." - Wicked

people at North
Shore, I guess it
couldn't have been
To all of my classmates, I may have been
quiet. I may have looked uninterested. But
you guys made my North Shore experience.
It's cliche, but you guys are family, I love
you guys, and if we see each other at a later
time in life, you guys can have dinner at my
place. If I have one.

Build me a son, Lord, who will be strong
enough to know when he is weak and brave enough
to face himself when he is afraid. One
who will be proud and unbending in defeat,
and humble and gentle in victory.
A son whose wishbone will not be where his back-
bone should be. A son who will know that
to know himself is the foundation stone of all true
Rear him I pray, not in the paths of ease and
comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties
and challenges. Here let him learn
to stand up in the storm, here let him learn
compassion for those who fail.
Build me a son, whose heart will be clean,
whose goal will be high. A son who will master
himself before he seeks to master others. One
who will learn to laugh yet never forget how
to weep. One who will reach onto the future,
but never forget the past. And after all these
are his, add, I pray, enough of a sense of
humor so that he may always be serious, but
not take himself too seriously. A touch of humility so
that he may always remember the
simplicity of true greatness, the open mind of
true wisdom, the meekness of true strength.
Then I his father, will dare in the recesses of
my own heart to whisper, "I have not lived in
